Hawks Vs Breakers
The 8/5 Hawks take on the 11/3 Breakers, 1st Vs 3rd.
Hawks played a few games in NZ as part of their pre-season and convincingly won the series and then carried that form into the regular season. The Hawks have been NZ's bogey team and present a big challenge to the defending champs. This game has me nervous, a loss for the Breakers and they have failed to beat any of the "title challengers" (2cnd place Cats & 3rd place Hawks) which won't give anyone much confidence heading towards the playoffs. Where as a road win against a well coached team will be a positive statement and keep them on track towards the historic 3peat.
